I've always liked the number eleven. SciFiGuy.ca is the eleventh stop on the blog tour for Fire by Kristin Cashore. I recently finished listening to the audio book version of Graceling and was totally engrossed in the characters and the world. I am currently about half way through Fire which is a companion story and I am finding it equally compelling and entertaining. You won't want to miss either book, but more importantly you will find that you don't have to have read Graceling to enjoy Fire. We also have a signed hardcover edition of Fire to give away. Details at the end of the post. Fire is officially in stores October 5.
She is the last of her kind...
It is not a peaceful time in the Dells. In King City, the young King Nash is clinging to the throne, while rebel lords in the north and south build armies to unseat him. War is coming. And the mountains and forest are filled with spies and thieves. This is where Fire lives, a girl whose beauty is impossibly irresistible and who can control the minds of everyone around her.And my sneak preview character from Fire is -
Exquisitely romantic, this companion to the highly praised Graceling has an entirely new cast of characters, save for one person who plays a pivotal role in both books. You don’t need to have read Graceling to love Fire. But if you haven’t, you’ll be dying to read it next.
Tess, elderly but strong as an ox, is Hanna’s caretaker, and lives with her in the little green house on the castle grounds. What pretty, pale green eyes Tess has. But why do they look on Fire with such unfriendliness?
Read the Prologue and first two chapters of the book in this sampler preview.
